AKG_DrumsetSession1-smallANAHEIM, California – Featuring a sensational price/performance ratio, the new HARMAN’s AKG Drum Set Session I is a high-performance microphone starter kit that contains everything to perfectly capture the sound of a complete drum set. By combining an array of its condenser and dynamic microphones, AKG is providing drummers with a versatile and compact pack of tools for recording and live performance.

Containing seven high-performance microphones from the Perception Live series, the Drum Set Session I contains one AKG P2 bass drum microphone, two P17 small-diaphragm microphones for overheads and four P4 microphones for toms and snares. The set is complete with all microphone clamps and stand adapters, and comes in a protective aluminum carrying case that is rugged and roadworthy.

To ensure peace of mind, the Perception Live microphones feature an indestructible metal casing, a rugged spring steel microphone grill, a scratch-resistant finish and gold plated XLR pins. As usual, these AKG microphones are suitable for high input and powerful sound during all applications.

Wireworld® Nano Series Improves In-Ear Monitors

Wireworld Cable Technology, a respected manufacturer of high-performance audio and video cables, is releasing a brand-new series of ultra-light and flexible audio cables for in-ear monitors (IEMs) as well as headphones and portable audio devices. The Nano series will include four level options, each of which utilizes patented Wireworld technology to provide dramatic sonic benefits.

“In-ear monitors have become an essential tool for live performances,” comments Wireworld president and founder David Salz. “The increased clarity and expressive dynamics of the Nano cables bring IEM systems to a new level of performance that artists can rely on.”

All four Nano cables employ Wireworld’s patented DNA Helix® design with eight signal conductors—four times as many as in standard cables—to channel the electromagnetic signal energy more efficiently, providing greater detail and dynamics. They also utilize Wireworld’s proprietary Composilex® 2 insulation which minimizes triboelectric noise for surprisingly lifelike tone quality.

With molded plugs and oxygen-free copper conductors, the Pulse™ brings the advantages of this leading edge cable design down to popular pricing at $40 USD (1.5m). The Nano-Eclipse™ has Ohno Continuous Cast® (OCC) copper conductors and sells for $160 (1.5m). The Nano-Silver Eclipse™ features OCC® silver-clad copper conductors at $220 USD (1.5m). And featuring carbon-fiber plugs and OCC® solid-silver conductors for uncompromised performance, the Nano-Platinum Eclipse™ has a suggested retail price of $500 USD (1.5m).

The Nano cables are available with mini jacks and the most popular headphone terminals in a variety of standard and custom lengths.

Wireworld Pro Audio will be exhibiting and demonstrating Nano and their entire line of Pro Audio Cables during NAMM 2015, in Hall A, Booth 6773. Please visit to learn why industry expert Bobby Owsinski said, “I was a major skeptic that high-end cables could offer any sonic improvement, but Wireworld changed my mind in a big way.”

Martin Audio MLA’s Excellent First Night Out With The Tenors

Tenors_1 web

Raleigh, NC––Kevin Sucher, FOH engineer for the popular Canadian operatic pop foursome The Tenors, recently had a very successful first experience mixing with Martin Audio’s MLA Compact loudspeaker system.

For two concerts at Raleigh’s Memorial Auditorium, Sucher was able to use a loudspeaker system provided by RMB Audio that consisted of 12 Martin Audio MLA Compact enclosures and 6 DSX subwoofers per side with 4 MLA Mini cabinets for lip fill, all networked via U-NET. Avid Profile consoles were provided for FOH and Monitor.

Asked about mixing with an MLA Compact system, Kevin responds, “It was my first time and it turned out to be a very pleasurable experience. For this tour, we didn’t carry any production with us, including backline, which presents its own challenges when you’re using different equipment from city to city.

“There can be a lot iffy pairings, but when you have the correct rig paired with the right desk some magical things can happen and this was one of those very pleasantly surprising situations. Bottom line, the MLA system blew me away. It was really exceptional. We do many of these shows all around the world and I’ve mixed on a lot of different systems, but this was one of those rare occasions when the responsiveness and the ability to make a small change in the dynamics was amazing. 3dB really felt like 3dB!

“And the frequency response was fantastic, like 800Hz was truly 800Hz. There weren’t any of these situations where you’re trying to borrow or cut frequencies from areas you don’t want to cut, but you have to because your ears are telling you what you’re hearing isn’t correct. Every frequency was exactly where it was supposed to be.”

Kevin feels that mixing The Tenors is particularly challenging because of the complex dynamics presented by having 20 to 30 string players on stage along with a large 30-member choir and a five-piece band. Their music is highly detailed which demands the kind of precise dynamic control provided by MLA Compact.

“I started out as a recording engineer and then became a FOH engineer many years ago so I approach live mixing in a very ‘studio’ kind of way,” Kevin explains. “Staying true to their music and recordings as closely as possible is very important, and when you have a lot of live microphones onstage it’s difficult to keep the dynamics contained.

“Adding to the challenge is the fact that The Tenors’ repertoire ranges from classical crossover all the way through different types of pop music that changes from night to night. As such, the speaker system needs to be very responsive and my approach to mixing them is as if they are a large pop act so I need adequate bottom end, much more than some venues they’re booked into. That wasn’t a problem with the MLA system.”

RMB Audio’s Cooper Cannady guided Kevin through the MLA Compact system’s capabilities, including its ability to avoid directing the energy to certain areas in the venue: “Cooper is very knowledgeable about MLA and he quickly educated me how to use ‘hard avoid’ to duck the ceiling response around the 7dB to 8dB range so we could eliminate unwanted reflections we didn’t want in the performance, which made a noticeable difference. The flexibility to change the direction of the energy is like having extra amenities in a very sexy car. These are really well thought out additions.

“That kind of flexibility also allowed us to control feedback in situations where The Tenors performed in the audience 30 to 40 feet in front of the main hangs, which can be tricky depending on the microphones you’re using.”

Because the Memorial Auditorium is almost as wide as it is long without a true balcony and a second level of seats that begins high up far behind FOH position, the MLA system had to be rigged much closer to the ceiling to provide proper coverage. That said, MLA’s control proved to be “a big help in terms of what was a challenging space in terms of getting real boxy-sounding.

“At this point, I could not at this point think of a better rig than the MLA system for that situation,” Kevin concludes. “I would be eager to hear it again in a more typical space.

“In terms of the sound for all of our shows, it was probably the highlight of the tour. A lot of people walked by after the concert and gave us thumbs up. I’d be very eager to use it again.”

Matthew Dear Chooses PMC Monitors for His Studio

Matthew Dear

Michigan-based electronic artist, producer, DJ and remixer Matthew Dear, Ghostly Records’ first signing, has bought a pair of PMC twotwo.8 reference monitors for his personal recording studio, an impressive facility based around a Mac Pro running Logic and a 1979 vintage Spectra Sonics mixing console.
Dear felt a need to change his studio monitors after becoming dissatisfied with the transferability of mixes he was creating in his studio. “My old monitors weren’t cutting it for me anymore. I’d take a mix to a label or to a collaborator’s place, and sometimes it would be spot on, and sometimes it would be off. When you mix your own stuff, you need that ability to translate. I know of guys that have million-dollar rooms, but their tracks only sound good in that room. And if it sounds great there, but not on an iPod or on the radio, you have a problem!”

Dear likes to remain aware of current audio equipment trends and researches everything he buys himself. He heard about PMC’s twotwos on-line and was keen to audition them, having heard of the company and its Grammy-winning roster of users. He also contacted Techno pioneer Carl Craig for advice after reading that he owned PMC BB5s. Craig advised him to speak to Maurice Patist at PMC USA directly.

“I contacted Maurice, and he couldn’t have been more helpful,” explains Dear from his studio. “He sent me some twotwo.6s to demo, and I really thought they were going to be too small for me. But I was really surprised and impressed. They sounded amazing for their size.” Eventually, Dear chose to buy the twotwo.8s, the largest in the twotwo range, feeling they were more closely suited to his roomy studio.

“I was working on an electronic album with another artist, and my old monitors were making everything sound very nice and smooth. When I got the PMCs, it was almost like taking a rag with Windex on it and cleaning a dirty window. Everything was much more present, and the areas I really needed to work on started jumping out at me. There was more accuracy in the high frequencies, and especially in the low mid. That’s where I was really missing out with my last speakers; I needed something more controlled.”

Now setting up a new studio in the Detroit area, Dear feels the twotwo.8s have brought him the transferability he was looking for. “Since getting the twotwos, when I’ve worked on something here and then taken the mix elsewhere, it’s exactly as I heard it here. I don’t get any hidden surprises any more.”

Matthew Dear is DJing around the USA in February 2015, and on tour later in the year under his Audion alias. For more information, see http://ghostly.com/artists/matthew-dear.
